Oh well, no harm.

At least it's something somewhat positive to talk about.

What's up with all of these college kids we're signing? We must be planning to move that first rounder.

or it could be that the oilers are starting to think that many of the prospects the oilers drafted outside of the first round are starting to edge towards being busts

Yeah I'm a bit confused by it too. Two college signings just because? Or is there a big trade in the works? Probably the former.

I think this off season we will see some house cleaning ofm prospects who are not developing like the oilers want and some players off of out current nhl roster will be let go

current rostered player who I think will either not be offered a contract or will be moved for next to nothing

D
Peckham
Fistric (there is an outside chance he could get a new contract if it is for 1mill or less)
whitney
Potter will be waiver wire material
F
Smithson
Pettreel (I love this guy but I think the oilers will be looking for an upgrade)
Jones (he is a 3rd/4th liner who brings little in the way of grity
Smyth- Oiler may take the hit on either buying him out or trading him to Calgary
Hemsky-- for me, it confuses me why people toss Horcoff under the bus while giving Hemsky a free pass more or less
Belanger just has never fir in with the oilers
Eager--Bought out--there has been more and more hints in the media he may not be the best teammate in the world

wild card is how much money Gagner wants-- if he is asking for the 5million range I think he will be moved and MPS could be dangled--but he has shown signs of being more then he has in the past

I think we will see Lander and Hartikeinen will be looked upon to step it up

On the farm
Horduchcuk seems done
Teubert maybe allowed to walk
Archebello
Plante days are numbered
I would not be shocked to Camren Abney kicked to the street this off season
there are a few others on the farm I think the oilers will cut ties with-- right now-- drafting outside of the first round for the past 5 years is looking less and less good as some have been saying

It is sad that I am embarrassed they had him watch an Oilers game.

This isn't uncommon we signed House, Tremblay, Fedun, Arcobello, the same way and I'm sure there were a bunch of guys that OKC/Stockton signed as well.

It's just another way to add prospects to your club.

Being that he's just a freshman, this may just be the Oil getting in a players mind...ideally, he goes back to school. Makes another leap in development and signs after next season.

"hey Kenny! see Corey Potter over there? Well don't worry, his contract ends next year" *wink* *wink* *nudge* *nudge

I don't see why they wouldn't sign guys if the opportunity presents itself.

The reason they're doing this is because Howson scouted a lot of NCAA this year after he was out of a job in CBJ. This is a Howson impetus and these signings fall under his influence. Is this a good idea? Well they don't cost an assets to acquire so I guess you could say they're low-risk, but time will tell if the most important aspect - the evaluation of the player - was accurate or not.

Howson is the only guy in management that I actually respect in terms of decision making.

I'm guessing he was all but signed but then they decided to take him to an Oilers game and sign the contract there. It all went to hell once the Oilers took to the ice.

Halls a third liner, we dont need anymore of those

I'd rather Horcoff be down the road, but that probably won't happen so Hall and Horcoff makes it 2 bottom 6 fixtures.

MacT is probably still in Russia.
